Research Proposals - Art and Architecture
Research Proposals - Art and Architecture.
Oct 16 2023, 12-1pm EST.
Research proposals and grants are developed to be reviewed by a human reader. Quality of the content is absolutely essential, but sometimes isn’t enough – many grants are excellent, and tired reviewers reading quickly can easily miss key information they need. Here, we’ll discuss how to use the ‘art and architecture’ of proposals to make it easier for reviewers to read a complex document and find the content that will help your grant get a better review.
Dr Dawn McArthur is Director, Research and Technology Development at UBC’s research institute at BC Children's Hospital (BCCHR), western Canada’s largest child health research institute. One of Canada’s first grants facilitators, Dr McArthur has held senior research development positions for 20+ years, starting at SFU (1999-2003). In 2003, she was recruited to BCCHR to establish and lead the Research & Technology Development Office (RTDO), with the mandate to enhance research excellence, capacity, and competitiveness of the Institute's multi-disciplinary research community. The RTDO has an exceptional record for success and has helped bring in more than $500 million in external funding for research programs and major infrastructure projects. Dr McArthur has worked with researchers from all fields, from arts/design to zoology. She gives workshops and webinars in Canada and abroad on various topics related to grants facilitation and research development.
